More than 40 IDEA scholars began the process today of applying for valuable spring break learning opportunities. Scholars are applying for either a paid internship or the week-long DC3C program, which includes job skills, community service hours, a laptop, professional clothing from Nordstrom Rack, and introductions to potential internships. DC3C is sponsored by the DC Special Education Cooperative.
